Saints Pick DE Cameron Jordan

Great pick! This guy was a top 15 talent, excellent value at a position of need. I'm excited about taking a good RB in the second round.

Best of defensive line prospects: Cameron Jordan, California, 6-4, 287, 1...Jordan is willing to play any position and he has the versatility and skills to match that coachability. The Golden Bears did him a favor by shifting to a 3-4 defense in 2008. In doing so, Jordan established NFL readiness as he slid from five-technique defensive end in a 4-3 to multiple line spots in the 3-4 defense. He's not a superior natural pass rusher because his adequate first-step quickness won't challenge NFL offensive tackles. Jordan's strength and strong anchor for his size keep him alive as a second-effort pass rusher and he's difficult to uproot in the running game. Jordan grew up around the game as a sidekick to his Pro Bowl tight end dad, Steve Jordan (Vikings, 1982-94), and has matured since a one-game suspension following a DUI as a freshman. His personality and intelligence are evident in interviews and will be appreciated by teams that ask a lot schematically of their front-seven defenders.

Great pick...for a 3-4 i think....I'm worried we still will have no pass rush from front four....hope I'm wrong.

I'm liking this pick. Sounds like it was a value pick as several thought he'd go higher. And... he fits a glaring need, someone to play opposite Smith.

I'm ok with this pick. This sets us up nicely on the d-line. I'm thinking line backer in the 2nd round.

Good pick. Grab a backer in the second and a rb in the 3rd

Uh Oh! You may have spoken too quick. Ingram a Saint at #28.

I'm FIRED UP! All indications are that we are ALL IN to make a VERY serious run at another title this year ... I love SP's tenacity going after Ingram ... I think he'll be an absolute beast! Jordan was the right call at #24, but for what we gave up (really just a 1st for next year because we'll find a way to get a 2nd from someone) this is AMAZING!!!
